SO YOU CAN HEAL
Dealing With Loss
Grief has been widely viewed as an experience that occurs once someone important in your life dies. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross was the first to develop a model for grief called the 5 Stages of Grief in the 1990s. These 5 stages include: Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression, and Acceptance.
Today, we understand that grief is experienced not only with the death of a loved one. It can present itself in any experience of loss. The loss of hopes or dreams, a loved one, a way of life. Grief also expands past the 5 stages originally outlined by Kübler-Ross. We have experienced the uniqueness of grieving in the work with our clients and we are ready to meet you and your loved ones where you are.

To personalize therapy for you, you can expect that during your first session we will explore what is bringing you to therapy, why now it is important to you, and what you are hoping to resolve.
The stillpoint to me, is the acceptance of life as it is.
One thing I know personally is if I get stuck in a boundary that is continuously overwhelming or repetitively suppressing it will become my normal and my mind, body, and experience of joy are dampened and depleted.
Take a moment to PAUSE. TAKE A BREATH. LOWER YOUR VOICE. RELAX YOUR BODY.
For me, once the tears start flowing, my silence is broken. After the silence is broken, I am able to process with curiosity whatever is attached to those tears.
We lose what we once were, in order to become what we will be.
There is no creativity without healing, and no healing without creativity.
